True and truthful!


The family is one of nature's masterpieces. —George Santayana
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. —Theodor Seuss Geisel
To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. —Osho
Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. —Moliere
You don't have to accept the invitation to get angry. Instead, practice forgiveness, empathy and encouragement. —Dan Fallon
That thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, too early in the morning, too late at night. That thing you read about, write about, think about, in fact fantasize about. That thing you do when you’re all alone and there’s no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. That’s it. That’s your thing. That’s your heart, your guide. That’s the thing you must, must do. —Jes Allen
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.  —Thomas Edison
The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. —Don Williams Jr.
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. —Maya Angelou
The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives. —Russell M. Nelson
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination. —John Luther
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. —William Butler Yeats
Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life. —Seneca
Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are. —Kristin Armstrong
I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious. —Albert Einstein
May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours wherever you may roam...
 —Irish Proverb
